New 2021 Workshop – Computer Fundamentals


Due to demand, we developed our ‘Computer Fundamentals’ workshop and ran our first workshop as a closed group workshop, with great success! We are running our first open workshop on the 23 September 2021 from 9am to 3pm (if this date is too far away, let us know as we can either do as a one-on-one or if we get enough interest, we can open up another date sooner).


We are excited to bring you a new 6-hour workshop!
